Meet the Koshino family roots, warriors from the bamboo forests of Japan.
A favourite of David Bowie, Candy Ken and Stella McCartney, Michiko Koshino’s newest collection is an interesting exploration into the family names history. Thousands of years ago the Koshino name was of ancient warrior beginnings deep in the bamboo filled forests of Japan.
References to the Koshino military roots can be seen in some of the designs, practical workwear, graphic prints and the use of manmade fabrics all point to this. The Iconic inflatables that Koshino uses have been reinvented, playfully mirroring nature with animalistic silhouettes. Masks have now been introduced to the brand, again looking back at the fighter roots.
